chains in the front are to keep your ball joints from braking.. cant hurt to run em i think theyre to noisey ,as for the back chains go to a bridge that u gotta make u can add that on any time its not required to have swithes thats what i think...hope this helps

I would say you can hop to about 50 inches safely without chains as long as you continually check your ball joints....over that....it gets scary. Time for chains. :(

Does this regal have a full reinforced frame under it or? Because with 10 batterys and 3 pumps, I dont think the stock frame will hold it if your planning on hoping it.

Chains hold your lower a arm up if a ball joint busts...therefore your spring dont fly out and fuck up your ride even more, and keeps the car from landing on top the lower a arm if it is pointed directly down or chewing the rim and tire up ( cali-swangin style! ) lol

anybody have any pics with chains in the front???? :dunno:
yeah that would help another question when you chain the front you run a chain to your lower arm to the frame right and do you lock up your front then weld the chains or do you chain it of a little under lock out?
